Why you gotta be so
difficult coy, Bristol Palin?
The reality star was recently asked by KWHL's The Bob & Mark Show if reports were true that she was seeing a 20-year-old Alaska pipeline worker, and she responded with:
"Are you guys getting personal with me, really?"
Luckily, the radio hosts weren't taking no for an answer, and suggested that she just say "Yeah, you know what, I'm seeing a guy and he's really great and Tripp loves him and we're having a really good time and we're really good friends," to which she finally relented:
"Yeah, we can go with that. I'm thrilled. I love the town that I live in. I love my house. Tripp's happy; he's healthy. It was cool. It made Dancing with the Stars worth it, for sure."
Bristol ALSO finally opened up about speculation that she had changed Tripp's last name to Palin, and revealed that although she wants to, she hasn't LEGALLY done so, because of baby daddy's Levi's reluctance!
"Yeah, I've asked Levi to do it many different times, just get it out of the way, just sign over his parental rights, but I don't know if he will or if he wants to right now. I've asked him to do that many times – just say, 'Hey, look, let's just avoid this custody case that's been ongoing since Tripp was born just get it over with just sign over your rights. He's always going to be your son, you can see him whenever you want to,' but he just doesn't want to sign him over because it looks bad on paper. Since Dancing With the Stars he's seen him, at the most, three times. It's like four hours I think. It's unfortunate for Tripp."
Wow! If that is, in fact, the truth of the matter, then we're glad that she's found a spot where she can get settled and keep her primary focus on her son!
And hopefully this new man, whomever he may be, can be a positive influence in Tripp's life!
Best of luck, bb!
